    Ego reveals his master plan to Quill: he travelled the universe and planted seedlings on thousands of worlds, so that he could terraform them into new extensions of himself.

With the Runaways (other than Hernandez, whose school age Stein is not referring to) born in early 2001, they would be in junior high from August 2012 to June 2015, so, using the middle of this as an approximation for when Wilder made the snacks, it can be estimated that it was January 14.

  6. In Enter The Dreamland, Gert Yorkes realizes Stacey wiped her memory when she was "13". With Gert born in January 2001 (see 2000s references), this would make it between January 2014 and January 2015. When discussing the event, Stacey initially guesses Gert was "maybe 12", suggesting Gert had perhaps only recently turned 13 at the time, so it can be approximated to January 2014.

  8. 8.0 8.1 8.2 8.3 8.4 8.5 8.6 8.7 8.8 8.9 In Step in the Arena, Carl Lucas/Luke Cage's hair growth would suggest approximately 4 months between his first day and nearly attacking Comanche in the courtyard, and a further 2 months between then and Squabbles being killed and Lucas/Cage being attacked again, with his escape the next day. This all takes place before January 20, 2014, the firm date for when Reva Connors is killed (see other references). Ideally, it would be a good few months at least before her death. However, in Can't Front on Me, Shades says, "My last year in Seagate, me and Comanche got paid by this juiced-in-guard, Rackham, to beat the shit out of some guy named Carl Lucas." In Code of the Streets, in November 2015 (see 2015 references), Shades says, "I just got home [...] Three years this time, Seagate," suggesting he was released in late 2015, so his "last year in Seagate" would start in late 2014, but Cage is already out and Connors is already dead by then. If Shades is taken to be very loosely meaning "just" when he says "just got home", you could maybe take it that he got home a little earlier in 2015, but still, this does not work, with Cage escaping absolutely no later than January 2014. At a stretch, it can be taken that Shades is referring to the calendar year of 2014 as his last year at Seagate, released in the first half of 2015, so only a few months in and with 2015 not counting as his last "year" - and he is also only meaning "just" loosely, back for about half a year. With this, it would mean that his second attack on Lucas/Cage, the attack that he is referring to, can be in January 2014 and still loosely fit his statement. However, with Connors killed on January 20, 2014, this is very late for Lucas/Cage's escape. At an absolute minimum, they spend a few weeks together after the escape and before her death. So, all things considered, the attack can be dated to January 1, 2014, just about fitting Shades' statement at a stretch, and allowing Cage and Connors 18 days (2nd-20th), as much as possible, living freely together before her death. This makes Lucas/Cage nearly attacking Comanche roughly November 1, 2013, and his first day at Seagate roughly July 1, 2013, based on hair growth. The rest of the flashbacks in Step in the Arena are placed between July 2013 and January 2014 accordingly.

As well as this, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has to occur as early as possible in January 2014 ("winter" following the film's events, "a few years" and "2 years" in Captain America: Civil War, see other references). From all of this, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Chase, T.R.A.C.K.S., and T.A.H.I.T.I. occur at the end of December 2013 (27th-30th), with Yes Men picking up with Simmons and Skye a few days later on January 3, 2014. This also fits with them having dealt with the Overkill Device "a while back," nearly 2 months from early November to late December.
  15. In Who You Really Are, Coulson refers to his last encounter with Sif as being "last year." The events of Who You Really Are have to occur in March 2015 (see other references to the timespan of A Fractured House to Avengers: Age of Ultron), therefore placing Yes Men (the last encounter with Sif) in 2014.

  25. 25.0 25.1 In Captain America: Civil War, Sam Wilson says to Natasha Romanoff, "Aren't you the same woman who told the government to kiss her ass a few years ago?" The date of him saying this is definitively June 2016 (the same day that the news says Lagos was "last month," with that date given by WHiH, see other references). This would imply Captain America: The Winter Soldier is about 3 years prior to Captain America: Civil War. However, later on, Wilson says that they "looked for [the Winter Soldier] for 2 years." The reasoned date for the search beginning is January 15, 2014. This is 2 years and 5 months, which fits as 2 years, but also a high 2 years that can be referred to as "a few years." It also falls as inline as possible with the mention in Shadows of "winter" occurring following the film's events, with the film being as early as possible in 2014, taking into account Yes Men and End of the Beginning (see other references to the timespan between Seeds and Yes Men). Placing Captain America: The Winter Soldier in January 2014 also still fits as "2 years" after The Avengers (May 2012), as stated by Scarlett Johansson. It is 1 year and 8 months, which rounds up, as well as fitting with the crude math of 2014-2012=2 years. It also fits perfectly with all the timeline references in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 1.

  27. Rogers tells Romanoff that he is "95," definitively placing this between July 4, 2013 and July 3, 2014. January 2014 falls perfectly in the middle of this.
  28. 28.0 28.1 In On and On, a flashback is shown of Cage and Connors in bed together. This is between Cage's escape from prison on January 2, 2014 (see other references) and Connors' death on January 20, 2014 (see other references), so can be approximated to January 11, 2014. Their wedding can be approximated to the same day.

  31. In Turn, Turn, Turn, Coulson states, "I haven't been able to get [Fury] on the line for weeks." The reasoned date for the previous contact is December 4, 2013, after his successful rescue. The reasoned date for him saying this is January 9, 2014, which fits as 5 weeks.

  54. 54.0 54.1 54.2 54.3 54.4 54.5 54.6 54.7 In Kandahar, it is shown that on Frank Castle's birthday, November 15th (see 1976 references), there are "29 days" supposed to be remaining of their deployment. Therefore, they are due to finish on December 14th. In Home, when Madani questions Castle about Kandahar, she asks, "You served many years as a Marine Force Recon?" He replies, "I did." She asks, "But that isn't where you served your last mission?", and Castle affirms, "No. I was part of a covert CIA operation. It was called Cerberus." Therefore, Kandahar was Castle's final deployment. However, in Kinbaku, Ellison's statements firmly place the Massacre at Central Park on April 4, 2015 (see 2015 references), and in Penny and Dime, Castle explains that this was the day after he got back from his final deployment. It must therefore be assumed that after Castle attacked William Rawlins on November 16th, similarly to how Russo "requested a transfer back to Force", Castle either requested to move or was forced to for his damaging attack on a superior officer, and had to serve an extra few months before finishing on April 3, 2015. This therefore makes the November that the Kandahar events take place November 2014.
    In Crosshairs, Frank Castle says "we did 15-month rotations in Afghanistan". Since they were due to finish on December 14, 2014, it can therefore be assumed that the deployment began around September 14, 2013. This also aligns with the fact that Castle says on November 15, 2014, "We have been doing it for a year," as it would have been 14 months.
    Finally, the assassination of Ahmad Zubair takes place somewhere between the September 14, 2013 start of the operation and the November 15, 2014 abrupt ending, so it can be approximated as roughly halfway between, around the night of April 15-16, 2014.

  56. In Resurrection, Ray Nadeem says, on October 23, 2017 (see 2017 references), that he has not "had a pay bump in 3-and-a-half years". Taking this to be about 3 years and 6 months, it could be referring to a near-exact 6 months (around April 23, 2014), or more generally "October - April = 6 months" (approximating with mid-April, April 15/16, 2014). Putting more weight on the more specific, a weighted calculation gives approximately April 20, 2014.
  57. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 3.01: Laws of Nature

  62. In Heavy is the Head, May says to Coulson on the reasoned date of June 2nd, "It's been 18 days since your last episode."

  64. Guardians of the Galaxy Prelude: "Many Years Later"
  65. 65.0 65.1 The Marvel Cinematic Universe follows a general real time policy in most of Phase Two - set when the media is released when suitable.
  66. In Scars, the onscreen text shows a scene set immediately preceding Shadows as being "one year ago." The events of Scars have to occur in May 2015 (see other references to the placement of Avengers: Age of Ultron), with the reasoned date being May 7, 2015. A year prior to this places the scene in approximately late May 2014. Late May fits very nicely with Talbot's statement that Coulson and S.H.I.E.L.D. "managed to evade [Talbot and the military] for an entire winter." While this initially would suggest Captain America: The Winter Soldier takes place in November 2013 and Shadows picks up in March 2014, this is not possible, with it having to occur in 2014 (various time references in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 1 to spanning several months from September 2013 and a couple of months following Thor: The Dark World, "2 years" in Captain America: Civil War, see other references for more details). With the suggested timespan of Seeds to Yes Men putting Yes Men in early January 2014, it fits nicely with the end of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 1 following Captain America: The Winter Soldier immediately in mid-January. It can then be assumed that Talbot is referring to the remainder of winter (January-early March), and with it being now spring moving into summer, winter has come to a resolute, "entire" close. In Shadows, Coulson states, "Our plane's been gathering dust for months." The last time the Bus was used was January 18, 2014, which fits as 4½ months later. He also states that "in the months since [Simmons left], [Fitz has] grown isolated." The reasoned date for Simmons leaving is January 30, 2014, which fits as 4 months later. Brett Dalton also is quoted as saying, "Ward had a hell of a time in the cage by himself for 6 months, he had some suicidal tendencies, and once he comes to the end of wrestling with all of his demons, he makes a promise; to reunite Skye with her dad." The suicidal tendencies etc. refers to where we pick up in Shadows, but the promise to Skye is Making Friends and Influencing People. With that episode being mid-September (see other references to the stretch between Heavy is the Head and A Fractured House), the middle of these two dates - late May and mid-September, is mid-to-late July, which works nicely as 6 months after mid-January. With Talbot going for a walk with his son around midday in Shadows, it makes sense for this to be a Sunday, thereby finally dating it as May 29, 2014.
  67. 67.0 67.1 Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 6.02: Window of Opportunity
  68. Spider-Man: Homecoming
  69. 69.0 69.1 69.2 69.3 Shadows has to occur in May 2014 ("one year ago" from May 2015, "entire winter" preceding it, see other references), but A Fractured House has to take place no earlier than March 2015 (see other references to the timespan between A Fractured House and Avengers: Age of Ultron). There are undetermined spans of time between Heavy is the Head and Making Friends and Influencing People, Making Friends and Influencing People and Face My Enemy, and a mostly undetermined span between A Hen in the Wolf House and A Fractured House, other than when A Fractured House picks up, it does not seem that Morse and Hunter have been reunited for long. A 3½-month span is placed between Heavy is the Head and Making Friends and Influencing People, and Making Friends and Influencing People and Face My Enemy, then a span of under 2 months between A Hen in the Wolf House and A Fractured House, to stretch the first set of episodes to fill out the span of time reasonably.

  71. 71.0 71.1 71.2 In Guardians of the Galaxy, the peace treaty signed between the Nova and Kree empires is described as "recent" by a news reporter on August 1, 2014 (see other references). At a stretch, this would place the signing of the treaty three months before the events of the film. Taking a weighted average, the treaty would be signed on approximately June 8, 2014.
    Ronan is said to have defected from the Kree Empire as a result of the treaty, joining Thanos' army and eventually attacking the planet Kylos, during which Drax the Destroyer's wife and child were killed. Ronan can be taken to have defected on the same day as the treaty, using that as the earliest possible day for the Massacre of the Kylosians. After the massacre, Drax received 22 counts of murder and 5 counts of grievous bodily harm, so he likely would not have been arrested less than one week before the film's events, so July 25, 2014 can be taken as an absolute maximum. This would place the Kylosian massacre on June 15, 2014. For full calculations, see here.
  72. 72.0 72.1 Through Runaways it is said that PRIDE sacrificed someone to Jonah once a year for 15 years (Fifteen: "One a year for 15 years", Hostile: "You ever notice that every year one of your young parishioners goes missing?", "Same time of year, every year", Last Rites: "One a year"), resulting in fifteen sacrifices (Fifteen: fifteen names are listed, Kingdom: "Fifteen kids have died in this room", Doomsday: "How could you murder fifteen kids?", Last Rites: "Like you killed fifteen runaways"). Fifteen annual sacrifices would amount in fact to 14 years start to finish, and with the last one in December 2017 (see 2017 references), that would make the first sacrifice around 2003.
    However, there is evidence for 15 + years of sacrifices, not 14 years. In Fifteen, it is said they have taken runaways for "over 15 years". In Doomsday it is said that PRIDE has had a grip on the parents' "lives for the last 15 years". As well as this, Season 3 suggests there was in fact a further sacrifice (Smoke and Mirrors: "I only sacrificed seventeen innocent kids" (including Andre Compton, which the previous counts did not), Rite of Thunder: "She helped murder seventeen teenagers", Enter The Dreamland: "We are the seventeen"). Plus "one a year for 15 years" could be taken as "one a year, and we've been doing that for 15 years" rather than "one a year fifteen times, amounting to 15 years". So, it would seem overall that yes, the sacrifices started around 15 years before 2017, not 14. This, then, would make the first sacrifice 2002.
    However, in Doomsday, a flashback to "fifteen years ago" before December 2017, set shortly after the first sacrifice. While this would align with 2002, Nico Minoru is shown to be a baby only about 3-4 months old. With Nico born around January 2001 (see other references), this would make it roughly April-May 2001. Amy Minoru is also shown to be about 2½. With Amy born around December 1998 (see 1990s references), this would make it roughly mid-2001. Given this, and the lack of flexibility to the children's ages, particularly baby Nico, then the latest this scene can be is June 2001. So, taking this latest possible time, the "fifteen years ago" must be taken to be a rounding from 16 years, and the first sacrifice, Brooks Watten, must also be moved from 2002 to June 2001. With the Metamorphosis flashback to "fifteen years ago" of the Wilders getting their house set not long before this and particularly given it is also stretched already to 16 years prior, but enough time to get Brooks Watten, it can be assumed that Watten did not undergo 6 months at the Church of Gibborim like the other Runaways, and was procured in May 2001, with the house scene set that same month.
    With it said in Hostile that the sacrifices are the "same time of year, every year", it should be assumed that almost all the sacrifices were in early December, like the one on December 4, 2015 (see 2015 references) and the one on December 8, 2017 (see 2017 references), so likely the Friday closest to December 6th. With fourteen sacrifices prior to Destiny Gonzalez and not including Brooks Watten, the second sacrifice would therefore, however, be 14 years prior in December 2003, 2½ years after the first. Given Jonah deteriorates over a year, it should be taken that there were never two sacrifices more than 18 months apart. So, it may be taken that the second sacrifice was in fact December 2002, the third June 2004, and then the fourth December 2005, with the fourth to sixteenth (Gonzalez) all being annually in December from 2005 to 2017, and the first few negligible enough to be discounted in the statement of "same time of year, every year".
    Fifteen names, up to and including Gonzalez, are shown in Fifteen, meaning there is a bonus sacrifice not listed on the computer somewhere between Brooks Watten and Destiny Gonzalez, making them between the second and fifteenth sacrifice, so it may be guessed that they were the eighth/ninth. To decide which, taking halfway between June 2001 and December 2017, it would have been roughly late 2009, making it closer to the eighth sacrifice than the ninth. So, it may have been taken to have been the eighth.
    Therefore, overall, the sacrifices were: Brooks Watten June 2001, Adam Cooper December 6, 2002, Jamie Baxter June 8, 2004 (halfway between December 6, 2002 and December 9, 2005), Tim Bennett December 9, 2005, Xavier Marquez December 8, 2006, Karly Scolari December 7, 2007, James Braswyck December 5, 2008, unknown runaway December 4, 2009, Anthony Rocha December 3, 2010, Kim Hwang December 9, 2011, Bridget Bynum December 7, 2012, John Donahue December 6, 2013, Emily Wong December 5, 2014, Yvonne Taylor December 4, 2015, Brian Geparhart December 9, 2016, and finally Destiny Gonzalez (failed sacrifice) December 8, 2017 and Andre Compton December 11, 2017 (see 2017 references). Adam Cooper to Destiny Gonzalez would have been taken 6 months in advance.

  76. 76.0 76.1 76.2 76.3 In All Souled Out, flashbacks of Misty Knight and Rafael Scarfe are shown, seemingly to roughly the year before Luke Cage: Season 1, so 2014. In the second flashback, Scarfe mentions a New York Mets game being on. The middle of the 2014 season by date was June 29/30, 2014, the middle of the 2014 season by game number was June 28/29, 2014, so overall, it can be approximated that this is scene is roughly June 29, 2014. The flashback before can be approximated to a week prior, June 22, 2014, and the flashback after can be approximated to a week after, July 6, 2014.

  85. 85.0 85.1 85.2 85.3 85.4 In Avengers: Endgame, 2014 events are shown simultaneous to the events of Guardians of the Galaxy. With the 2023 Avengers making no impacts of significance until Rhodes knocks out Quill, the events of the film up to that point can be taken to play out essentially identically in that universe. Similarly, events such as the attack on Korbin and some previously unseen moves of Quill's, shown only in Avengers: Endgame, are unaffected by the 2023 Avengers' actions, so can be taken to have also happened in the main universe.

  90. In S.O.S. Part One, Ward says that Palamas endured "months of torture and mind control." She is freed when Whitehall dies on the reasoned date of March 31, 2015, and the reasoned date for her torture beginning is September 18, 2014, which fits as 6½ months.

  92. In the Marvel Television Live Auction Lot #503: New York Nine Newspaper Clipping, it is stated that "Elle Québec put Bouchard on the cover of its August issue", which was the 2014 August issue, suggesting this article was released between July 29, 2014 (the release of the August 2014 issue) and July 2015, for "August issue" to refer to August 2014. It then says, "Bouchard, who turned 20 in February." Eugenie Bouchard turned 20 in February 2014, suggesting this article is from between March 1, 2014 (for "February" to refer to February 2014) and December 31, 2014 (January/February 2015 would likely make it "last February"). Finally, the Eugenie Bouchard-Shelby Rogers tennis match is referenced, from August 6, 2014. Overall, it should be from between August 6, 2014 and December 31, 2014, suggesting approximately October 2014. October 15, 2014 would make the most sense, being the anniversary of the 1987 game news story included in the paper - reprinting it for a "this day in history"-type segment.
  93. 93.0 93.1 93.2 93.3 93.4 93.5 93.6 In several instances, such as here and here, James Gunn is quoted as saying that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set 2 months after the end of Guardians of the Galaxy (with the latter also confirming it is set in "2014," which is corroborated in the film by the "1980" on-screen date, followed by "34 years later"). Here it is quoted as "a couple months" after, which implies about 2⅓ months. Here it is quoted as "3 months." Collecting all of these, the average is around 2⅓ months later. The end scene of Guardians of the Galaxy is dated as August 8, 2014, so 2⅓ months later is October 18, 2014. As for when the film is "set" - this could either reference when it picks up at the beginning, or when the middle of the film is set. The beginning of the film is the afternoon of the film's 1st day, and the middle of the film is the morning of the film's 3rd day, so the best day to assign the October 18, 2014 date to is the 2nd day, therefore meaning the film starts on October 17, 2014.
  94. In this live-stream, around the 46-minute mark, Gunn reveals that Yondu's funeral is only hours after his death.
  95. In Principia, Werner von Strucker says to Dr. Levi Van Kempen on Saturday, December 16, 2017 (see 2017 references), "April, your daughter. Just turned 3 [...] 6 weeks ago, during our Tuesday session [...] your wife called [...] April had a fever, 103.2. All those kids at the parties, a lot of germs." This would have occurred on Tuesday, October 31, 2017, and the implication is that this would be the day after April's party, making that October 30, 2017 and therefore implying that she turned 3 on October 30, 2017, making her date of birth October 30, 2014.
